Beyond freedom's reach : a kidnapping in the twilight of slavery by Adam Rothman( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born into slavery in rural Louisiana, Rose Herera was bought and sold several times before being purchased by the De Hart family of New Orleans. Still a slave, she married and had children, who also became the property of the De Harts. But after Union forces captured New Orleans in 1862 during the American Civil War, Herera's owners fled to Havana, taking three of her small children with them. Just how far the rights of freed slaves extended was unclear to black and white people alike, and so when Mary De Hart returned to New Orleans in 1865 to visit friends, she was surprised to find herself taken into custody as a kidnapper. The case of Rose Herera's abducted children made its way through New Orleans' courts, igniting a custody battle that revealed the prospects and limits of justice during Reconstruction. Rose Herera's perseverance brought her children's plight to the attention of members of the U.S. Senate and State Department, who turned a domestic conflict into an international scandal

Beacons of Liberty: Free-Soil Havens and the American Anti-Slavery Movement, 1813-1863 by Elena Karpinski Abbott( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Reading across the rich print culture produced by nineteenth-century politicians, activists, migrants, missionaries, travelers, and newspaper editors, this study illuminates the myriad ways that free-soil havens inspired anti-slavery thought and activism in the United States. Free-soil havens offered destinations for fugitive slaves and free black emigrants, modeled various political and socio-economic outcomes of emancipation, and became familiar symbols of liberty and equality. They produced diplomatic crises challenging the power of American slaveholders and encouraged anti-slavery advocates to fight against American slavery on an international scale
Slave country : American expansion and the origins of the Deep South by Adam Rothman( Recording )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

[This book] tells the tragic story of the expansion of slavery in the new United States. In the wake of the American Revolution, slavery gradually disappeared from the northern states and the importation of captive Africans was prohibited. Yet, at the same time, the country's slave population grew, new plantation crops appeared, and several new slave states joined the Union. [The author] explores how slavery flourished in a new nation dedicated to the principle of equality among free men, and reveals the enormous consequences of U.S. expansion into the region that became the Deep South. [He] maps the combination of transatlantic capitalism and American nationalism that provoked a massive forced migration of slaves into Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi. He tells the fascinating story of collaboration and conflict among the diverse European, African, and indigenous peoples who inhabited the Deep South during the Jeffersonian era, and who turned the region into the most dynamic slave system of the Atlantic world. Paying close attention to dramatic episodes of resistance, rebellion, and war, Rothman exposes the terrible violence that haunted the Jeffersonian vision of republican expansion across the American continent. "Slave Country" combines political, economic, military, and social history in an elegant narrative that illuminates the perilous relation between freedom and slavery in the early United States. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in an honest look at America's troubled past.-http://www.booksinprint.com
